We analyze stability of equilibria for a delayed SIR epidemic model, in which population growth is subject to logistic growth in absence of disease, with a nonlinear incidence rate satisfying suitable monotonicity conditions. The model admits a unique endemic equilibrium if and only if the basic reproduction number R 0 exceeds one, while the trivial(More)
Within the theoretical framework of the numerical stability analysis for the Volterra integral equations, we consider a new class of test problems and we study the long-time behavior of the numerical solution obtained by direct quadrature methods as a function of the stepsize. Furthermore, we analyze how the numerical solution responds to certain(More)
We investigate the class of general linear methods of order p and stage order q = p for the numerical solution of Volterra integral equations of the second kind. Construction of highly stable methods based on the Schur criterion is described and examples of methods of order one and two which are A-stable and have large regions of stability with respect to(More)
